NCTJ and Beyond: What you may have missed and the future

Those Wannabe Hacks have done it again, given me more food for thought about how to progress the NCTJ and Beyond blog. I was reading one of their excellent posts the other day (you can read it here) and realised that I haven’t really done number five on that list, interacting with my readers out there.

Firstly, I would like to thank you all for taking the time to read the blog, comment on it and share it with others. In the short three months that I have been blogging there has been just over 1,500 page views. I consider that quite a success for a small, part time blog but I want to aim higher.

The blog has over 70 Twitter followers and 40 likes on its Facebook  page. It is listed as one of the best “J-Blogs” on It’s quite a solid readership base and there is potential to build on and I am very thankful to those who have jumped on board so far.

NCTJ and Beyond can always improve and reach greater heights and I would like to include the readers in helping the site grow. I would therefore like to open the blog to the floor and ask you all to give me some feedback. Is there a post you are screaming out for? Are there areas you think can be improved? Would you like to see more blogs more often? Any thoughts are welcome either on the comments, on Twitter or at the Facebook page.

In the meantime here are some of the most popular posts from the site that you may or may not have missed:
